...Of my yard and surrounding area. I love being surprised at what color these roses and Iris's are turning out to be. It's fun to watch them unfold!

thanks Gerda. I love the old fashion roses too. They are hardy and beautiful.

Yes, the kitty is ours. Her momma and 3 siblings are right behind her. Her momma is an excellent mouser, so we have no problems letting her have a litter of kitties to train

The roses are exquisite. I love iris's. Now as for the kitty, it's so sweet, ginger ones are so loveable.

Hugs and stitches

Those flower photos make me wistful for the yard with flowerbeds, I then think of the work and toll on my body to keep it up and I'll lap up the photos you share instead. I have difficulty with naming one favorite flower but iris is high on the list.

Dear Dorian,

The photos are lovely, you are a very lucky lady and you take such a good picture.  I love photographing flowers and took lots and lots of photos when were in Spain last week. Once I figure out how to post photos there will be no stopping me!

The old fashioned roses are my favourite, I have just one o.f bush in my garden, it has small white flowers and the smell is beautiful, the buds are all nearly ready to open, I can't wait and was glad it didn't happen while we were away.

How do you decide when to garden potter and when to sew? I love my sewing but as soon as the sun comes out I find it difficult to sit at my machine or just to be indoors. Mark reckons it's because we don't get too many 'cracking the flags' days in central Scotland, I think he's right!

Bye for now,

Sue x

Well, Sue, can you not take your machine out to the patio/deck/porch?? If there is a plug-in (or snaffle one of Mark's extension cords LOL), then take the lot outside on nice days. If I had a taller table available on our tiny balcony, that's what I would do. As it is, I take my stitchery and applique outside to sew. Though pottering in the gardens is nice, too - do that while it's cool, then go sew!

LOL Sue. Fortunatley these roses and iris's were already here when I moved in. I have a hard time digging in the dirt/getting on my hands and knees..bending/leaning over anymore So when I DO get a new flower to plant, my darling daughter is a most anxious helper. She loves working in the soil, taking care of the veggies and flowers....So now I have more time to sew   LOL. but I also enjoy being outside and find taking a nice stroll..with or without my camera and/or pruners...is a good, relaxing break from sewing and housework. So I fit it into my day here and there, especially in the mornings.

And thank you, I love my camera, I am always taking pics of the kids/nature.

Dorian.... thanks for sharing your pictures..... It is fun to see what is in a new property... I am still discovering plants.... I have several white calla lillies, some oriental lilies, and daylillies..... but I think i see some Jack in the pulpit coming up..... the leaves look different from the callas..... I'll have to wait and see.

DH is disappointed that the wisteria and iris are done..... now he's noticed the peonies..... I've told him it's like directing a symphony.... everyone plays at a different time..... LOL So... last weekend, I was planting the veggies in a bed that has some pieris shrubs,. I've added some dahlias and roses, and will put some low border stuff up front when I get a chance, cottage style, with the cucumbers and tomatoes in the mix. "Can you plant veggies and flowers together?" he asked. I tried to explain to him that it's a cottage garden.... "Oh, he said, a cottage garden over here, and over there we have our symphony". LOL I was amazed that he remembered or cared.....

Dorian I love the salmon colored rose... that's my favorite color of flower. Yours are just beautiful.

 I took a few pictures around the yard as I was cutting some blossoms to bring to grandma the other day. Here's a few... the last one is my recycling of the 1/2 inch strips I cut off when I straighten a piece of fabric. Some I put out for the birds and some I save for tomato plants.
